Sick of the delay you get when pushing your accelerator pedal?
HIKEit has a solution to get rid of that pedal lag!

The HIKEit X9 Throttle Controller is one of our most advanced controller on the market and is designed specifically To "wake up" your car by reducing throttle lag and improving the response time from your vehicle's "fly by wire" accelerator. Best of all, the X9 is Plug & Play!

What is the HIKEit X9?

The HIKEit X9 is a 'bite-size' throttle response controller that removes delays in your electronic accelerator pedal. In short, the X9 will get a faster response from your engine and therefore you'll get a modified acceleration depending on the X9 setting you select.

When you push your car's pedal it shouldn't feel like your stomping a sponge; you should get an immediate response from your engine which is why we developed the HIKEit X9.

In addition to Automatic Mode Selection which will intelligently learn your driving style and the current situation and adapt the mode to suit, the X9 has 4 different control modes: Eco/4x4, Cruise, Sport/Tow, and the Highest Performance mode, HIKEit mode. Each of the 4 modes has 9 different adjustable levels available for selection.

  • Simple DIY Plug & Play Installation
  • Vehicle Specific Programming and OEM Plugs
  • User-Friendly Adjustments
  • 4 Modes PLUS Automatic Selection between the 4 modes and 40 Settings
  • Full Certification
  • 30 Day 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed or your Money Back
  • Lifetime Product Warranty and 30 Day Money Back Guarantee


The HIKEit X9 Difference

If your model is not featured please contact us as we will likely have a suitable solution or this information is not up to date.

How it works

The X9 has a clever PCB module that updates the points of reference for a vehicle's throttle mapping. Throttle Lag is added by manufacturers for a number of reasons including fuel economy. The HIKEit X9 maintains the standard parameters of your vehicle; however, introduces a sharper throttle curve (or smoother when in 4x4 Eco mode) and reduces the "dead zone" in your cars accelerator pedal.

Auto IQ Selection Mode:
Set & Forget Mode

HIKEit's Auto IQ Control Mode lets the driver set and forget while the X9 learns the driver's behaviour and selects the mode from the best of 40 mode settings based on the current driving situation. Generally, fly-by-wire pedal accelerator systems have two sensors that measure both how hard and far the pedal; the X9 tweaks these for a more enjoyable, safer and fuel saving drive.


HIKEit's Performance mode (with 9 level settings) is not for the 'Sunday driver'. HIKEit setting 1 is classified as intense while setting 7-9 is like 'launch mode'. Touching the mode button while in any mode will activate 'Over-Take mode' that will instantly put the X9 into HIKEit Mode setting 9.


HIKEit's Cruise mode (with 9 level settings) is a tuned down version of the popular sport/tow mode which will give you more of a boost than your cars original setting. It's perfect for everyday driving that won't blow out your fuel bill and knock your socks off.


HIKEit's Sport/Tow mode (with 9 level settings) is a fun way to get around without the adrenalin boost of HIKEIT mode. It's perfect when towing anything and will adjust perfectly to the application at hand. After Auto IQ Mode, Sport/Tow mode is the most favoured.


Economy Mode (E) Economy mode has 9 settings that reduce the response from the pedal which will improve fuel economy and with a dampened response it can be particularly handy in situations such as driving off road, towing, beach driving etc.

More modes than you can poke a stick at!

The X9 has More Modes

The X9 Smart Pedal introduces an additional 2 driving modes over the competition with 36 driver levels.


Quality-Built Dual Chipset

The heart of the X9 is the dual 32BIT Chipset sourced from industry experts which leaves it’s 16BIT competition in the dust.


Calculations as you Drive

In Auto Mode the X9 Smart Pedal will study the way you drive then select the mode and tune setting to suit your driving style and current driving situation.


Over Take Mode

Optimisation isn't just plain old optimisation

How the HIKEit X9 Stacks up against the Competition

The most widely used doesn't always mean the best. This is true in the instance of throttle controllers. When selecting a throttle controller it's important that performance and reliability are put ahead of the brand name.


Improve Power without additional stress on your Vehicle, just better response!

The HIKEIT X9 works just like the 'Sport' button found in many cars by cutting down the amount of pedal travel required to achieve 'Throttle Wide Open' which will allow you to access the engines full potential. The HIKEIT X9 is pre-programmed with 4 adjustable mode maps which are finely tuned for your vehicle. Each function will alter the throttle signal in a different way which can be set depending on your preference.

Transmission Specific Settings

When gears changed in both Auto and Manual Transmissions there is always a slight delay in throttle response which can affect take off speed and general safety. The HIKEIT X9 sits between the pedal and your car's ECU to intercept the signal and process it in order to quicken the response time. The X9 has individual setting based on you car's transmission to tune the signal further while maintaining the original feel of an Auto or Manual Transmission.

Auto Brightness Adjustment

Built into the face of the HIKEIT X9 is a clever Ambient Light Sensor which will adjust the brightness of the blue display light so you can see the settings perfectly in day light and you won't be blinded at night time.

Undetectable by your Car Dealership!

We understand the last thing you want to do is void your new car warranty. With the HIKEIT you don't need to wait for your warranty to finish before you can start customising it and improving it's driving performance.

Once removed, the HIKEIT won't leave a trace when removed while some other aftermarket tuners or programmers will add "red flags" on the ECU after installed. Rest assured that the HIKEIT is 100% UNTRACEABLE by dealerships. Before visiting your dealer for a service just unplug the HIKEIT and hide it out of sight. For repair work we recommend removing it just to be safe.



Introducing the most advanced Pedal Controller on the market. The HIKEIT X9 is a simple yet effective throttle response modification system designed to improve your driving experience. Fitting between the accelerator pedal and the ECU (the cars brain), on modern 'drive-by-wire' vehicles, the HIKEIT Pedal Controller maximises the signal to give the smoothest and most effective response while driving. Suited to both diesel and petrol vehicles the HIKEIT X9 makes the vehicle more driveable in many ways including:


When overtaking it is essential to access all the engines power as efficiently as possible. The enhanced throttle response from the X9 improves that efficiency and therefore the speed and safety of an overtaking manoeuvre.

Driving Pleasure

A better throttle response from HIKEIT plays a major part in the overall driving experience as it gives the driver superior, customised control over the acceleration of their vehicle.

Coming out of a Corner

Prior to entering a corner, the vehicles brakes are applied and power is reduced. When the accelerator is applied through that corner or after the corner, the vehicle needs to respond smoothly and quickly in order to maintain the correct road speed. A better throttle response improves the power delivery and helps the car accelerate from the corner more effectively.

"well so happy with my throttle control unit put one in my d40 navara and well what a difference it is like driving a petrol car now instead of a diesel ute. did a lot of research before buying a hike it throttle control unit did look at a iDrive system but for $150 less I got the same thing just with a different name. the wife was amazed at how different it made the ute perform. so glad I went with the x9 with Blue face plate. I would recommend to anybody that is looking for a throttle control unit to get one of these units. 100% happy with it and the customer service was very good was updated every few days on where it was. happy customer here thanks guys you made my Christmas."

Amazing product!!! Installed this in my Suzuki Jimmy 2020 and am truly amazed how well the little 4x4 drives now. This should be a standard purchase for all Jimny owners. To be honest it feels as if I have double the power, I'm no longer that slow sluggish vehicle going up the hill or from the traffic lights. I have experienced all modes and love to he cruise mode the best. Sport and HikeIT are very intense, don't get me wrong tho I will be switching it up for fun from time to time.

Just installed a HikeIt in my wife's VW Jetta, the HikeIt9 mode actually scared me a little how responsive it was, it's an entirely different car now.I'm just worried that buying it for the Eco mode will backfire once the wife finds the HikeIt mode, might end up spending more on fuel, not less haha

Had the Hikeit on the car for about a month.This is my third PX Ranger, it the first time I’ve tried a throttle controller, man, what a difference! It’s like a different truck.

Was always very curious to see how much pedal lag could be resolved buy one of these devises,and as there is a few available brands on the market today which one would be the best for me?
However listening to other users rave about the functionality and price I am happy to say the HIKEit X9 works an absolute treat on my tS XT Subaru Forester, it’s basically a different vehicle So guys thank you from a very happy customer.

I got my Hikeit going on 2 weeks now and I'm thoroughly impressed.I have it on my 2020 Haval H2 and while it only has a 1.5ltr the Hikeit gives it the much needed quick throttle control to combat the lag that it is known for.
I was sceptical at first but one I took it for a good go around the burbs and on the highway I'm a very satisfied customer. Being able to safely pull out into traffic quickly and overtake with confidence, it's made it a very worthy purchase. If I happen to get another vehicle, this will be the first thing on my shopping list Thanks heaps Hikeit!!!

Did my research before buying with few manufacturers but HIKEit just stood out with its warranty and modes. Plus the price point is unbelievable for the warranty it comes with. The fact that I could also unplug the control when taking it back to dealership without removing the whole thing was a winner in my eyes, and have used this function. Was an easy fit and has absolutely turned my car in to a different beast. would highly recommend this product to anyone who isn't sure if its something they need in their life, I don't even turn it off any more as its underwhelming in factory mode compared to hi9 setting.

Earlier this year my manual Mazda 3 was hit and written off so I took the opportunity to "upgrade" to an automatic since the stop start traffic of the school commute was tedious. It was great until I found myself in the car on my own, I missed the punch and control of driving my manual. I've now had a HIKEit in my Tucson for about 2 weeks and I am thrilled with the results. I don't get the joys of stomping the clutch and shifting the gears but I sure do get that punch now. Auto mode is great for the family drive (more power than without but doesn't make the tyres squeal) and HI mode, well it made me grin ear to ear while driving my car again

What a transformation with the Hikeit installed. Fitted it on the weekend and immediately tested all modes and the variation is obviously noticeable and makes the vehicle so different to drive. It’s like I bought the newer 3.0 V6 model! I have settled on Sport#2 setting as this is not too sharp but just leaps off when needed and very drivable in town.
